The man who shot and killed 32 people at Virginia Tech five years ago was able to get his hands on guns because his mental health records hadn't been added to the national background check system.In the wake of that tragedy, Virginia proved that strong...

Gladly signed. Thanks, Nancy. A gun is a weapon. It can hurt others. It should not just be handed over to anyone willing to hand over money for it.

Signed and noted. Thanks Nancy. If only guns could be outlawed totally! The use of guns does NOT a society safer... Rather the reverse!.. If they ARE to be sold, the restrictions and regulations governing them should be SO strict that obtaining them should be almost impossible!

LETTER SENT. I don't know if the same anymore, but in NC, you could buy a gun as long as you had a driver's licence - what one has to do with the other I have no idea. You passed the eye test, so you can see well enough to shoot?

"in NC, you could buy a gun as long as you had a driver's licence - what one has to do with the other I have no idea. You passed the eye test, so you can see well enough to shoot?"
Uh....d'ya think perchance...it just 'might' have had something to do with the fact that possession of a valid NC driver's licence, complete with address....might have been required to show residency? That one WAS a resident of the state in which he was obtaining a firearm?

"The use of guns does NOT a society safer... Rather the reverse!.. If they ARE to be sold, the restrictions and regulations governing them should be SO strict that obtaining them should be almost impossible!"
Thank you, Nicky....for a graphic example of raving 'hoplophobia'.....an irrational fear of weapons....specifically guns.
I somethimes wonder if it ever crosses the 'liberal' (small L) mind....that murder has been proscribed (banned) by the state for centuries....yet people still kill people....with a variety of weapons......very often an edged instrument. Perhaps we should ban 'knives'....ESPECIALLY if they're SHARP....and even MORESO if they LOOK SCARY?
What about rapists? Seems to me that the vast majority of rapes are perpetrated by using a penis. All men have penises (okay....MOST men) and thus are 'potential rapists'. 'liberal' solution? Let's order all penises amputated and collected....after all....no penises....no rapes! (other than those perpetrated with a variety of inaminate objects, of course....but, hey.....IF it saves just ONE LIFE....it'd be 'worth the sacrifice'. (shakes head, walking away bemused at the irrational illogic running rampant in our 'politically correct' societies.

Noted, signed, tweeted, and shared. You would think we in this country would have more sense; we allow the National Rifle Association and the gun lobby to have so much power that we have tragedies in our schools, businesses, even at political rallies. This crap about guns don't kill people do is garbage. It is a lot easier to kill lots of people with a gun than a knife or any weapon that requires the attacker to get close to the victim before he cam harm him.

When you hear the body count from over the weekend on Monday morning's news, you know that gun laws are useless.
